…photography, food and musings of our travels
The Christmas decorations are slowly filling up the shelves in our local stores and I have to say, I’m really enjoying the rustic feel the decorations have this year. It’s a little like autumn but with attitude!
Autumn/Fall is this week’s challenge for Weather Weekly from Tourmaline.
These mushrooms appeared on our front lawn just in time for Halloween, complete with an icky-sticky black goo around the edges.
If I hadn’t watch them hatch from their egg-shaped beginnings I would have believed they were someone’s Halloween decorations had gone walk-about!
This glass flower must have measured at least two-feet across the top. There was an entire room of these flowers on exhibit at the Chihuly Glass and Garden in Seattle. The lighting accentuating their color and beauty.
If only I could have brought one home. Or more importantly, if only I could have afforded to bring one home – oh how wonderful that would have been!
My favorite part of autumn is watching the many different mushrooms that pop-up in the undergrowth. One has to be quick however as they are only a temporary fixture, disappearing as quickly as they appear.
Temporary is The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for this week.
It’s that time of year again… time to dust off and drag down all the boxes of Christmas decorations that have been safely tucked away in the attic for the year.
It’s time for a little Christmas color, time for a little Christmas clutter, time to light up Christmas. Let the Christmas Countdown begin… woot, woot!
Daylight savings finished for the summer here yesterday. It’s just in the nick of time given that winter will unbelievably be here next month.
Although I’m still wrapping my head around the fact in this day and age the seasons begin during the month not on the first of the month when I grew up. Or maybe that was just a southern hemisphere thing!
